i seen these questions before, and the same answer.."bilsteins" and i have to say, that you should figure in your particular area and road surfaces, if you live in sunny CA with nice flat pot hole free roads, yes go stiff shoxs, if you live in the real world where there are lots of bumps, run a good set of gas shoxs, there is nothing more unsettling than to be in some twistys, and it gets a bit rough and you have that gut wrenching feeling as the car hops sideways because it is sprung too stiff, i lowered my car, put the f/ha combo, and run a monroe gas shock, it is much less violent on twisty rough roads, yet still seems to "hang" in there at the track. Just my opinion here for my own circumstances and the usual disclaimers apply.

From What I've Read Here, The Bilstein's Are a More Aggressive Shock. I Have The Edelbrock IAS In My 95 Caprice But I Dont Drive Really Aggresive! The Edelbrocks Used To Have a Leaking Problem a Few Years Ago But They Have Solved That Problem. The Edelbrock's Perform Well In Pretty Harsh Curves And Also Ride Well In Normal Driving.
I Guess It Depends On What Type Of Driving You Are Planning On Doing? Im Not Sure About The Dif If You Are Planning On Lowering The Car Etc.. I Dont Do That To My Cars Either! Just a Stock Set Of SS Springs!.....Mike

Bilstiens. You have a choice of soft or firm series. Either are great.

B-Body Builder,

Just Curious, What Is The Significance Of Capitalizing The First Letter Of Every Word?

As Far As Shocks Go, Bilsteins Makes A Great Shock. If the Stiff Bilsteins Are Too Stiff, You Can Go With The Softer Bilstiens.
